This research gives the detailed understanding about the analysis and the causes of abrupt failure of a suspension system ball joint. The necking region which is between the top and bottom portion of ball joint showed total. It shows that ball joint fails completely and this is dangerous case. To avoid the sudden failure of ball joint design modification is required at the necking region. In this study, modification of ball joint design is done for this purpose. Design of ball joint is optimized also stresses raisers are removed for required outcome. It is examined that the modified ball joint gives the better results and life cycle of component is increased. The shear stress calculated by FEA results of ball joint is correlated with UTM test results.
